8 Quickie LOS!

I took advantage of the Holy Week break to scrap some photos that have been waiting forever for their turn. But because we went out of town, I had to limit myself to bringing 2 Artbin cases and a stamp binder.

Title: Princess Dress Up

Journaling: Nadya you are a princess through and through. I hope that someday you will find your Prince Charming who will treat you like the princess that you are. Photos taken 2006;

Materials: MME patterned papers and die-cut title, words, definition; Making Memories fabric tape, Fancy Pants rub-ons, Heidi swapp Fuzzy Rub-ons, American Crafts pen, misc bling crown, Prima tape, Sassafras Lass stamp, Ancient Page ink
Another executive decision I made for this trip was to use the MME page kits which have been sitting in my cabinet for years.

I went through my stuff (and am still going through them) to see what I can sell to make room for new stuff and saw all these page kits.

Title: Baby Girl

Materials: MME Patterned papers, die-cuts and frame, Hambly transparency, Making Memories cyrstal brads, Doodlebug stamp, Ancient Page ink, American Crafts pen, Fancy Pants rub-ons, Prima tape

Initially, I was going to sell them all but I reminded myself that I got them for a reason, because I liked them. So I looked at the photos that I already had and matched them with the page kits. Before i knew it, I had 15 pages waiting to be scrapped.

Title: On The Edge

Materials: MME patterned papers and frame, Scenic Route chipboard, 7 Gypsies rub-ons and fabric stickers, Queen & Co felt, Daisy Ds rub-on tape, Prima tape

I spent the early evening of Maundy Thursday and most of Good Friday scrapping and "finished" 8 LOs.

Saturday and Sunday were "non-scrap" days since friends came over (more pics to scrap) and we left for home on Sunday.

Title: Home & Family

Journaling: Father's Day 2007, Eastwood City, Breakfast at Heaven n Eggs;

Materials: MME papers, Daisy Ds die-cuts and rub-on tape, 7 Gypsies fabric reinforcers, Basic Grey rub-ons, Zig pen, American Crafts chipboard

I took Iris' advice when we go on crops to just make-do with what I was able to bring -- and not think of what I left back home. I didn't even get to bring any chipboard alphabets!

Title: Friendship

Journaling I hope that, when the two of you are older and have your own set of friends, you will always consider me as one of your best friends, as you do now. Love, Mommy; Photo May '07, LO Mar '08;

Materials: MME patterned papers, frame, diecut words, quote, Daisy D's hinge, Making Memories clip and paint, Ranger Grungeboard & Distress paint, We R Memory Keepers flock and adhesive, Creative Imaginations wire clip, Jenny Bowlin journaling paper, American Crafts pen, misc photo corner

Problem is, as soon as I got back home, I couldn't resist the urge to go through my stash to see what else I could add to the LOs.

Title: Little Lady

Materials: MME patterned papers, frame, and die-cut title, Creative Imaginations paper lace, We R Memory Keepers metal hardware, Making Memories metal word, misc lace, KI Memories quote

After 2 days of doing this, I decided to stop it already -- cos it was defeating the purpose of the whole exercise.

Title: Dad & Me

Materials: MME patterned papers, frame, die-cut title and words; 7 Gypsies gaffer tape, Fancy Pants felt, Making Memories leather frame and brads, Hambly transparency, Zig pen

So here they are! I doubt if any of these LOs will win any contests but I'm just happy I got them done! These LOs use a maximum of 2 patterned papers. And since I couldn't bring a lot of stuff, there aren't many techniques except for paper tearing -- haha!

Title: Sweet Miracle

Materials: MME patterned papers & frame, Karen Foster metal word, AMM twill sayings, Making Memories velvet stickers, misc lace and bling

As much as this looks, there are still 7 page kits waiting to get done -- I wonder if or when I'll ever get to them???
